    Sub blown? or what? weird popping noise

    I hooked everything back up, cleaned up all my connections..hid the wires..etc. Turned the punch boost to about 80% (where it was b4)..and it was all good for 2 days. Then suddenly Pop..and no bass..the sub still moves and makes this strange popping sound..Like it's trying to hit..but can't...any suggestions?

    A. It's Blown
    B. Check the tinsel thread...it might need soldering.

    Well again its working fine, seems to me as if the sub is haunted...and what do you mean that much power w/a clipped signal? 500 watts rms is well w/in the power handling limits..

    500watts clipped could be closer to like 1000watts and those perfects won't take a 500watts rms with 80% bass boost for long. perfects are very picky and want nothing but around 200watts rms a piece clean.

    Don't overpower Perfects. It'll cost you.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    BA, Kove, Treo, Power HX2's, MMATS, some Memphis, HCCA, Stroker the list goes on and on those are just some very popular SPL subs that i know can take a serious beating and keep on ticking.

    My friend beats the f*ck out of his HX2, and I'm running double the rms to my e12k, and someone else on here said they would be giving their e12k somewhere in the 1Kw range(rms is 300)

    see i only say the power HX2's can take abuse b/c i have personaly ripped apart and i mean RIPPED apart 4 punch HX2 12"s off my old bd1000.1. the edK's can handle much more than the stated rms though so running double the rms doesn't mean they can take a beating. i know ben has come on here multiple times stating that they would be fine running with 600watts rms to them he just didn't rate them that high b/c people almost always run more than the RMS. i believe that is what he said anyway.
